A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Just checked www.discogs.com... it's indeed Marion on vocals, but the trumpet part is Andy Diagram. So a remake rather than a remix.
Avatar Thu. 7/25/19 9:59am Trouble:

i looked up the two bands to see if there was overlap but wiki says no. i dont know the dog faced harmans so i can't say...it is marion coutts on vocals, andy diagram on trumpet

if you're on the National Mall, try the cafeteria in the National Museum of the American Indian. it gets good marks.

@Ken I'm champion, thanks. But it is insanely hot, for London, today. loads of trains have been cancelled or are running slow in case the rails buckle.

However, here ther's no more north/south rivalry.
Unfortunately there are too many leaguers / fascists who are against foreigners. And those fascists have the sympathy of so many ignorant people. Italian politicians take advantage of it to produce suffering and get lots of votes for themselves.

My old lady, who knows a lot about wine and beer, has said for years that "wine-beer", referring to beer brewed with traditional, natural wine-making techniques, is still waiting to be properly discovered by the beer bros. She is still right.

The bee bros are still discovering hazy IPAs, popularized by early Bissel Bros beer and invented with sloppy brewing techniques. Beer can be so much better when it gets away from hop-loading and into brewing technique.
